Caroline Wozniacki's dreams of becoming a Grand Slam champion came true after an enthralling performance against Halep in Melbourne on Saturday.
The now Great Dane wept tears of joy after also returning to the top of the rankings - ending a record six-year stint between drinks - with the watershed win at Melbourne Park. On this basis, it's completely logical to recommend Wozniacki as a value underdog to be celebrating her first Grand Slam title of what has still been an illustrious career.
The rattled Dane promptly dropped serve for the first time, before regaining her cool to dominate the tiebreaker to pocket the opening set in 50 minutes.
"I've had matches where I've been down match points and I've won them, and you learn something from that".

"On that match point I thought this can't be real". My dad, who has been there since I was seven years old, thank you.
"I'm sorry, I'm just taking a second to hug Daphne", Wozniacki said, pausing as she clutched the winner's trophy in the on-court ceremony.
"For sure. I was really exhausted". I still stick with these predictions based on what I have seen this tournament.
"I fight and have many years to go, so hopefully will face another challenge like today". It's just a tennis match in the end. "It's fine. I cried, but now I'm smiling", Halep said.
"Maybe the fourth time will be with luck".

A big second serve and a first ace saved two of them but the relentless Halep forced Wozniacki long with a sliced forehand and the final was back on serve.
Both players needed medical attention during the brutal encounter in energy-sapping conditions so hot there was a 10-minute "extreme heat" break between second and third sets. "I can not say anything else about it".
After closing out the nerve-shredding win when Halep netted a backhand, an overwhelmed Wozniacki threw her racket away and collapsed onto the blue hard court as the packed terraces roared. "We both played very well". She lost French Open finals to Jelena Ostapenko past year - having led by a set and a break - and to Maria Sharapova in 2014. I think the most frustrating part was that when I was healthy I knew I can beat anyone. I was just going to go out there and give it my all and swing for it. But, yeah, I'm really sad I couldn't win it. "From a year ago to today I'm so proud my friend so proud".
Halep was broken in her first service game to go down a quick 2-0.
